Election Season: Angola

Angola is having an election, for those who missed it. Here and here for details.

It seems unlikely that the current family-in-charge (they all seem to be in government) will be ousted. Opposition parties and activists say government used state media to bulldoze everyone else. There are widespread rumours of mistakes in the voters role. This may be my favourite African election comment yet:
"Even the dead will vote during these elections!" exclaimed Pedro Diogo.
